No-Fear Dentistry Is Something To Celebrate! [BLOG]

I'm Embarrassed To Smile San Antonio, TX | Cosmetic Dental Associates

You don’t have to rely on medications that leave you groggy long after your appointment to experience stress-free, pain-free dental visits.

With our no-fear approach to dentistry at Cosmetic Dental Associates in San Antonio, TX, you can change the way you think and feel about professional dental care and be on your way to a healthier, more beautiful smile!

*Dental Fear Isn’t Always Rooted In Reality*

Fear by itself is a natural, necessary response to our surroundings. But you don’t want your dental fear to reach a point where it’s no longer rooted in reality.

That’s when fear becomes phobia, which makes going to the dentist nearly impossible for you.

You might be fixated on one bad appointment from your past, or you might hear friends, family, or co-workers talk about nightmare dental treatments of their own.

Ask yourself if what you fear about the dentist office is based on real evidence or on vague memories or things you’ve heard.

*Change The Way You Think About Dental Care*

Sometimes we nurture a fear simply by expecting the worst to happen.

When you don’t know what to expect, you design expectations around the worst case scenario. You expect that your dental treatment will be excruciatingly painful, so you avoid going to the dentist because you’re convinced you’re right, based on no evidence.

We understand how crippling false expectations and fear of the unknown can be to your oral health, which is why we go out of our way to be as thorough with you as possible.

That means longer appointments so we can take our time to explain every step of your treatment and make sure you understand what’s going to happen.

We’ll also answer questions you may have, talk about amenities we offer to make you feel more at home, and show you some of our advanced technology and explain how it makes treatment more comfortable.

*Trust Your Own Experiences With No-Fear Dentistry*

It’s not easy to get past your dental fears, especially if you’ve been carrying them with you for several years.

But in order to take the first step in overcoming your fears, you have to stop trusting your horrible imaginings or the horror stories others tell you, and start trusting your own experiences.

Even if you can’t forget bad memories of past experiences in the dental chair, you need to remember that those traumas happened at a different time in a different place with a different dentist.

It doesn’t mean that history is going to repeat itself, especially in the hands of our compassionate team at Cosmetic Dental Associates!

We’re a patient-focused dental practice, full of caring professionals who know how to make you feel relaxed and comfortable.

When you experience our no-fear approach for yourself, you’ll be able to let imagined or past experiences fade over time as you build more confidence about your dental care.

Call For An Appointment!

Getting over your fear is no easy task, which is why it’s so rewarding when you finally do it.

We’ve helped so many patients over the years overcome their dental fear, and we want you to experience that same sense of accomplishment that comes with regaining control of your oral health.
